  • I took a different route home from work on this morning. The sun was coming up as the fog was starting to lift. It was the first time the sun had been out in the last week, so I took the opportunity to enjoy it while snapping a few photos with my phone.

  • This photo was taken this past September in Door County, Wis. It is a shot of Schoolhouse Beach on Washington Island. The beach was named after the first school house built in 1850 on Washington Island in this beautiful crystal-clear bay. The smooth, even soft feeling, rounded limestones where left there after the action of an ice age glacier. There is a severe penalty for the removal of any of these unique stones.

  • Having to be extra early at the airport these days is usually a drawback. But this trip had a silver, or rather a golden lining.Sunrise at O'Hare offered a fantastic contrast of airliner tails, bright early morning sunbeams and a silhouette of the downtown buildings.Just as I snapped the picture, a landing jet floated into view under the tail of the plane I was about to board. Perfect timing.
